Because of his contract he would have to agree to be sent down. Hopefully he cares enough about the team and his own career to do it. He's apparently working very hard to correct himself and nothings worked so far.
Also, this would free up a spot for either Schaefer or Gattis to play who have been consistently good all year.
Spot on, as much as I hated to see AP go if the Cards would have given him the contract the Angels did I would have been ******. So far it is working out fine for the Cards.
St. Louis is the master of letting guys go at just the right time. Better a year too soon than a year too late. New York, Boston, and LA have the money to just go out and buy whatever they want, whenever they want. Not that St. Louis is exactly strapped for cash (#11 payroll entering this season), but they are far more efficient with their money than the big market teams. It's pretty rare for the Cardinals to make a significant roster move, whether it's bringing someone in or letting them go, and have it backfire on them.
